Question about Vizio Televison & Video

1 Answer

Vizio won't let me adjust the Brightness.

I found "Picture Mode" Custom, but when I scrolled down, and selected Brightness, it is stuck at 77. It suggests that I can adjust the brightness with the "+" function, but it does not move. If I hit the "+" key, the volume slider appears, and I find that I am adjusting the volume, not the brightness. The weird thing is, I've done this before, and changed the Brightness to 100, but now I can't figure out how I did, nor why it reverted back to 77, when I set it at 100. Please help!

You are not in the screen menu, you are in the audio menu or you are not even in the settings menu at all.

SOURCE: when i change the picture settings to my custom

Most likely you are in "retail" mode which intentionally reverts back to "vivid" which is deemed best for store display purposes.

Go to pg 21 of the manual and follow the first half of the reset instructions. Once you've chosen "home" (after first selecting "langauge") you need not go any deeper into set-up mode, just exit at this point.

99.95% sure this will solve your problem and your "picture" selections will now stay put.

When watching my new vizio smart tv I noticed it gets light then dark over and over again. whats wrong?


Could be in store demo mode. Check that then make sure the picture mode is not set to Eco friendly or anything related. It sounds like some picture setting where it reads the brightness and adjusts automatically. I've found almost all setting thereof to be quite useless and more trouble than anything.

How do i adjust brightness?


Hello,
Press the left/right direction button to adjust settings. When you select a picture Mode other than "Custom", these items are automatically given parameters to correspond with the chosen preset mode, so any change to these parameters would return the Mode setting to "Custom".

Vizio picture


It looks like your picture is zoomed, that control should be on your remote. Or change your picture ratio. Tints are all messed up. I would bring everything back down to black and white and start adjusting back up. To do this you have to be in picture mode custom (your pic shows your in standard mode). Everything else is preset for you. Go into all your settings and make adjustments. I also own a Vizio. It took me several attempts to adjust the picture to my liking.

I would like to reduce brightness on my ASUS VH242H


Actually, the problem isn't with the drivers. Right click on the battery icon in your system tray. Select "Power Options" (NOT Power4Gear eXtreme). On the right panel, select "Adjust the display brightness." Then, select "Change advanced power settings." Scroll down and open up the "Display" box. The options that are affecting your screen brightness on battery are "Allow SmartDimmer to reduce my brightness after," "Have SmartDimmer reduce my brightness by," and "SmartDimmer full-screen video mode." Playing with the percentages in these boxes will affect how your screen brightness adjusts itself. To get my screen to stop re-brightening itself, I changed "Allow SmartDimmer to reduce my brightness after/ On Battery:" to 100%. I then changed "Have SmartDimmer reduce my brightness by/ On battery:" to 0%. Finally, I set "SmartDimmer full-screen video mode/ On battery:" to Maximum Power Saving. This should solve your screen-rebrightening problems even with the 163.44 drivers (I use those too). Please Rate.

Some channels on my tv are dark and tinted orange, I used the menu button to display the menue and scrolled down to picture but I did not know how to select picture.


Hello
Adjust colour control to zero, and check for a pure black/white picture. Adjust contrast and brightness control to minimum and check whether the picture goes completly off or a slight picture prevails. If the picture goes out when you turn down brightness control to 1/3 position, that is about 20 points, your TVs screen voltage is very low, and it can be adjustable. If the picture does not go out and more brightness prevails, screen voltage is high. If the screen voltage is high, there will be some fine lines across the screen at about an inch apart; on the whole screen from top to bottom.
Screen voltage adjustment is critical for the clarity of the picture. If it is low, no proper colour will be dispayed. If it is high, it is harmful to both picture tube and your eyes.
Never try to adjust it without proper knowledge about it. The screen control can be located alongwith the LOT [Line Output Transformer], of your tv. There will have two adjustable controls there, one is for Focus, and the other is for Screen. Both are interactive, that is adjusting one will effect an other.

The TV will not let you set brightness, contrast, color or tint in the preset modes like Vivid, Movie, Standard etc. Look for a mode that says custom, user etc..

We have a Grundig GU19WDVDT and can't adjust the brightness, colour or contrast. We get to the right page on the menu but those bars are 'greyed out' and the cursor leaps from the top to the bottom of the...


You need to go into the menu...select picture mode and then select custom. This will allow you to change the picture to how you want it. Vivid/Standard etc are pre-setup so you can't adjust those.
Hope this helps...

Can I ask you to try something for me...do you have the digital working on this tv? If you go to your digital tv menu are you allowed to move up & down the on-screen menu & select the highlighted text. I am having problems with this.

Thank you,
